Tourism, holidays & weekends guide in the Calvados

In looking over some local records, we discovered that there was a 13th century castle and a chapel that has become part of the present church. This castle belonged to the descendants of the De Valois, families of Hautefeuille ... The castle that had experienced some Escoville Renaissance, there is construction between 15th and 16th century. In 1944 during the landing of the Allies, the castle was partially destroyed. Although the reconstruction began, many people wondered why this building was razed. The owners and the authorities concerned took the decision despite the reaction of the people nothing occurred to prevent this crazy initiative that amputated the communal heritage of some of its history.
